Kid Acne, urban pagan

Kid Acne‘s first solo exhibition in his home town of Sheffield opens today. Such is the auspicious nature of the occasion, he’s even made a special promo trailer to go with it…

Sheffield’s Millennium Gallery is showing Kid Acne: Kill Your Darlings until October 23 and it features a range of his illustration and grafitti work, murals and sculpture.

To promote the show, Acne (who is also well known as a musician and hip hop artist) teamed up with director Dscreet and graphics team Peter & Paul to create this decidedly pagan promo film. The soundtrack to the forest-based escapades is by Cherrystones.
